We are at the halfway point of the NBA betting campaign, and there are season win totals that are posted once again that we are analyzing.

Atlanta Hawks Over 37.5 Wins at SportBet.com: The Hawks need 18 wins over the course of the rest of the season, and we tend to think that they are going to get the job done. The Orlando Magic probably aren’t going to be as good after trading Dwight Howard (assuming that’s what happens), and Atlanta still has plenty of games left against the likes of Charlotte and Washington. Al Horford could be back in the lineup at the end of the year, and that might only help out. This is a team that has been through a heck of a lot this year, and we think that this is a team that is going to win 40 games this year.

Houston Rockets Over 35.5 Wins at SportBet.com: The Rockets have already won 20 games this year, and we tend to think that asking them to win just 16 games in the second half of the season shouldn’t be all that much. This is a team that is dominating at home at times, and there are some big time road wins as well. Head Coach Kevin McHale has done an awesome job keeping this team together in spite of all that could have gone wrong after an offseason in which seemingly half the team was set to get shipped out of town as a part of the Chris Paul deal.

Los Angeles Clippers Under 43.5 Wins at SportBet.com: Getting the Clippers to win 44 games in a regular 82 game season is hard as it is, but in this shortened campaign, matters are even harder. The team only won 20 games in the first half of the season, and the team has only played 15 games this year on the road with just about a .500 mark. Without Chauncey Billups in the fold for the second half of the year, the Clippers probably aren’t getting much beyond the 40 win mark this year in total.

Minnesota Timberwolves Over 29.5 Wins at SportBet.com: Ah, why not? The T’Wolves have 17 wins already on the season, and they are only going to need to win 13 in the second half of the year to get the job done. Call us crazy, but even in the stout Western Conference, we think that the Wolves have a great chance of finishing .500 on the campaign and might be able to even challenge for a playoff spot. Kevin Love and Ricky Rubio are going to bring this team into the future with gusto.

Orlando Magic Over 37.5 Wins at SportBet.com: Blah. We really don’t like the Magic this year, knowing that they really should trade Dwight Howard, but in the end, GM Otis Smith has proven that he is an idiot of a general manager and might make the huge mistake of not trading the cornerstone of his franchise at the deadline. We aren’t writing this team off even if Howard does get traded, knowing that there are going to be some big time pieces of the puzzle coming back. Don’t discount the possibility of the team trading for Deron Williams as well to pair with Howard in O-Town, and if that’s the case, this is a team that could win 45 games this year.

Sacramento Kings Over 21.5 Wins at SportBet.com: The Kings won 11 games in the first half of the season, and they played nine more games on the road than they did at home. This team also played a heck of a lot better ball once Paul Westphal was kicked out of Sacramento. Don’t think that the Kings are going to be a playoff team this year, but asking this team to win just 11 more games in the second half of the season shouldn’t be all that difficult, especially knowing that they are a team with a winning record at home this year.
